The Wenchang deep-sea floating wind demonstration venture has been linked to the grid by CNOOC Restricted. Because the connection was finalized close to the tip of final month, the venture will now have the ability to begin delivering energy to the grid.
The demonstration venture is positioned close to the Wenchang oilfields within the western a part of the South China Sea, 136 kilometers (84.5 miles) away from the shore in a water depth of 120 meters (390 toes).
It’s the world’s first semi-submersible “double hundred” deep-sea floating wind venture serving in a water depth of over 100 meters (330 toes) and with an offshore distance of over 100 kilometers (62 miles), CNOOC stated in its assertion.
The venture’s important manufacturing facility Haiyou Guanlan is China’s first deep-sea floating wind energy platform that provides energy to an offshore oilfield “below probably the most difficult oceanic situations”, CNOOC outlined. With an put in capability of seven.25 MW, the platform can produce as much as 22 million kWh of electrical energy, equal to saving almost 10 million cubic meters of pure fuel and decreasing carbon dioxide emissions by 22,000 tons per 12 months. CNOOC Restricted owns 100% fairness curiosity within the demonstration venture.
“The profitable commissioning of ‘Haiyou Guanlan’ demonstrates the newest achievement of CNOOC Restricted within the built-in growth of offshore oilfields and new vitality enterprise. The corporate has made probably the most out of our intrinsic comparative benefits and China’s main wind energy applied sciences. It additionally marks an necessary step ahead for the corporate to faucet offshore inexperienced vitality sources,” Wang Dongjin, Chairman of the corporate, stated.
To remind, Haiyou Guanlan, China’s first deep-sea floating wind energy platform invested in and constructed by CNOOC, set sail from Zhuhai in the direction of Hainan in the direction of the tip of March. Moreover, at first of the month, CNOOC commissioned China’s first offshore CCS demonstration venture.
The CCS venture is an auxiliary a part of the Enping 15-1 oilfields growth. Enping 15-1 oilfield is positioned within the Pearl River Mouth Basin, about 190 kilometers (118 miles) southwest of Hong Kong, with a median water depth of roughly 80 meters (260 toes) and has a excessive carbon dioxide content material.
